On Friday I traded in my 2016 Ford Mustang GT for a 2020 Veloster N. Been checking out this car for a while and super excited to finally own one.

First impressions are very good. Car handles well. I would say that it's just as stiff as my Performance Pack Mustang in normal mode. Stiffer in the other modes. I am only at 100 miles with it. Looking for every reason to drive to put more miles on it.

I tracked my mustang and will definitely track the Veloster. I have a Track Cross event coming up on September 1st. Really excited about that.

I really wanted to get a GT350, but it was out of my budget. Especially the 2019's with the updated ABS from their GT4 cars.

Yet another Mustang guy. Traded in my 2015 GT w/ PP for the VN. Loving the car so far! Very different than the mustang but the VN just handles like it's on rails!

I had a 2015 GT with PP and cloth Recaros that I got rid of in 2018. Left me with my 2016 Focus ST that I traded in on the VN.

Wow, a lot of guy's trading in their S550 Mustang's for a Veloster N! I also had a 2017 Mustang GT that I traded in for my 2019 Veloster N. My Mustang was a Lightning Blue base model, with a manual transmission. I had a catback exhaust, the Ford Power Pack 2 (GT350 intake/throttle body and ECU tune), and some SVE S350 wheels. I like my Veloster better than my Mustang already, not only as a day to day car.. but the driving experience as well.

Hey BRZ, WELCOME!
I too had a Mustang GT, but a 2014. I like my Veloster N much better than I did my old Mustang. For sure in the handling department. Also in the "sleeper" department. "Eh, it's only a Veloster."...that's what they thought!

That's awesome. Yeah, with my color, I am less of a sleeper. I went from Competition Orange to Racing Red lol

Just picked up a 2020 Veloster N in blue to replace my 2001 mustang GT convertible! I had some modifications done to improve the handling on the mustang: subframe connectors, front strut brace, front and rear sway bars, etc. The VN is just so much better in the handling department; that sport+ setting is no joke!
